Cadet Program

LA-Airport-Cadet-BadgeThe Airport Police Cadet Program was established January 2012 and is managed by the Training and Recruitment Unit under Professional Standards.

The Program is open to youth between the ages of 13 and 20.  The goal of the program is to help instill leadership, academic excellence, life-skills and discipline into its participants. The program also seeks to empower students into maximizing their personal, scholastic and life potential as well as providing early insight into what a career in law enforcement would be like at LAX.

Selected cadets attend an 18-week program at the LAPD Ahmanson Recruit Training Center in Los Angeles. Through academics, physical training and drill, cadets develop teamwork, learn leadership skills and a variety of basic law enforcement skills that they will be able to use as cadets as well as in their everyday lives.

The next cadet recruit class will begin in January 25, 2014 and there are no fees involved. Uniforms and insurance are provided through grant-funding to the city of Los Angeles.  Persons who are interested in the program or know of someone who may be interested, are asked to call the
Los Angeles Airport Police Training and Recruitment unit at (424) 646-9049 or (424) 646-9050.   Applications may be faxed to Training and Recruitment Unit at 424-646-9282. 

Fifteen year-old Cadet Jhreed Charles (centered in photographs below), made history as the first Airport Police Cadet to graduate from the Los Angeles Police Department Cadet Academy on June 10, 2012, at the University of Southern California Galen Center in Los Angleles (news release click here).  If you are someone you know is interested in joining the Airport Police family as a Cadet, contact the Training & Recruitment Unit.
